Giant Step Presents DJ Spinna at Le Bain

Monday, June 9
Le Bain at The Standard, New York NY
event description

We kicked off our Summer rooftop series at Le Bain on May 12th with Electric Punanny (aka Jasmine Solano & MeLo-X), who kept the dance floor jumping into the late night. We're excited about our next installment with one of the original Giant Step family members, DJ Spinna. If you missed our May party you don't want to sleep on our next party in June, with Summer in full swing we plan on keeping you sweaty for the rest of the season!

Vincent "DJ Spinna" Williams is something of an anomaly in music, a cornerstone of Hip-Hop's Golden era who became a go-to producer and key remixer for numerous high profile artists. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) with no restraints. DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12" singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era's lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn't have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn't accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene.
